Come Lie with Me

Good, good, good book! This is the kind of book that makes me want to find a wounded man and make him whole. Ok, I REALLY didn't just type that did I? ...more

Bullet (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #19)

First, LKH has lost me with the Anita Blake series. Like others, I read the books because it's like a train wreck. I just cannot look away. Second, I ...more

Excellent book. Until now, I had never heard of Caitlin Doughty or her website. I'd never thought much about the rituals of after-death. Personally, I ...more

The Mating (Law of the Lycans, #3)

Meh. It's ok. Don't like that the formatting is all screwed up and makes you think the book is 898 pages. Wouldn't read the next book...even though it ...more

Breathless
3.41
Not even close to as good as classic Koontz, barely as interesting as Life Expectancy. The last four chapters totally jump the shark; and my mediocre ...more

Blood Ties (Bishop/Special Crimes Unit, #12)

3 of 3. Better than Blood Dreams. About the same level as Blood Sins. However, I'm putting paid to this series. The ending puts the whole kibosh on th ...more

Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles, #1)

This reads like a cross between Harry Dresden, Rachel Morgan, and a tamer version of Elena from Women of the Otherworld novels. There is a crap ton an ...more

The Seasons Series - Part 2 (The Seasons Series Box Set)

Spring's Fury: Picked this up via a "Name that Book" request on LT. I've never read Domning before. She reads like Devereaux or Lindsey. This is proba ...more

The Art of Racing in the Rain

Innocence

This Dark Road to Mercy: A Novel

While this was an engaging novel while I read it, I doubt it will stay with me in the long run. Cash's characters range from cardboard-like mock ups t ...more

Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1)

Snow like Ashes was good. Better than I expected. I didn't actually remember why I'd bought it until I'd read the book blurb. The story is a predictab ...more

Black Magic Woman (Quincey Morris, #1)

I was a little annoyed with the "Texan" accent in the first few pages. Then the "podner" affectation was like nails on a chalk board. Followed by the ...more

First, this isn't my genre. I like space operas; but I am not a die hard science fiction fan. I'm definitely not a fan of epic SF sagas. Having said t ...more

Wah wah. Wah wah wah wah. I didn't make it far; but several things annoyed me immediately. Valena on one page doesn't want to seem TOO interested in m ...more
